Will you still need me when I am 94?

Full Story: Vancouver Sun

Those who loved the Beatles, would have loved their famous song When I am 64. The opening lyrics of the song go something like this:

When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine?

If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?
